Le FIFA international

A commitment
without borders

Le FIFA’s international dimension is a cornerstone of its mission. While the programming of each edition gives the pulse of international artistic creation, Le FIFA is active throughout the year to build bridges and be an active agent of encounters between works and audiences. Thanks to its international roots, Le FIFA gives festival-goers access to the world’s best films, as well as enabling home-grown films to travel and be presented at prestigious institutions and events.

Le FIFA is thus an important partner in the international promotion and distribution of art films and artists’ films. As a vehicle for cultural diplomacy, it puts its unique know-how at the service of its community, building bridges and sparking fruitful projects, partnerships and collaborations. Le FIFA is a partner in cultural blossoming, opening doors to creators from elsewhere while spreading the wealth of our culture across the globe.

Films from around the world

Each year, Le FIFA unveils a global cinematic panorama, highlighting works from over 40 countries. Our ARTS.FILM platform extends this showcase throughout the year, offering continuous access to the world’s artistic wealth.

A program open to the world

We constantly collaborate with established and emerging curators from all over the world to create benchmark cartes blanches, offering a global and innovative perspective on cinema and the arts in general. In recent editions, for example, Le FIFA has offered windows onto Morocco, sub-Saharan Africa, Iran, Lebanon, China, Japan, Israel, South Korea, Italy, Spain, the Arab world and France.

A program that travels

Depuis plus de trois décennies, nous forgeons des alliances stratégiques avec des institutions culturelles prestigieuses telles que la Fondation Maeght, le Palazzo Grassi à Venise, Le Fresnoy, et le Centre Culturel Canadien à Paris. Chaque année nous y sommes accueillis pour partager notre expertise en programmation de films sur l’art et consolider des relations uniques à même de faire rayonner toujours davantage des oeuvres d’ici.

Each year, we are welcomed to share our expertise in art film programming and consolidate unique relationships that will help us to raise the profile of Canadian works of art.

Le FIFA à l’Olympiade Culturelle Paris 2024

Une étape emblématique de notre rayonnement international et de notre engagement à créer des ponts entre les cultures et les disciplines se dessine avec la participation du FIFA et du Centre Culturel Canadien à l’Olympiade Culturelle Paris 2024. Une manifestation artistique et culturelle majeure qui se déploie en parallèle des Jeux olympiques et Paralympiques et qui vise à fusionner l’esprit sportif et la créativité artistique. C’est dans le cadre de cette vitrine exceptionnelle pour la culture canadienne que Le FIFA présente deux programmes de films d’ici explorant les thèmes de la résilience, de la diversité et de l’affirmation de soi.
